Montebello Design Centre

One of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets, Montebello Design Centre offers more than 20 arts and crafts studios and workshops, a historic greenhouse and nursery and a forge, as well as a tree-lined restaurant and organic deli farm shop.

The centre is home to a spectrum of designers and artists, from jewelers to painters, filmmakers to landscape artists.

Montebello Design Centre is a non-profit development project bequest to Cecil Michaelis with the aim of promoting local art culture and generating jobs. Stop here for a unique luncheon or an exciting craft workshop or evening class. Try your hand in printmaking, ceramics, art, crafts and jewelry making. The space is also available for rent as a co-working office.
